How-To: Boosting Up Your Glam Factor

Hey Curly-Fries. ❤ ❤

Sorry I’ve been gone for so long…I’ve missed you all so much, but there’s a million things going on right now.

Let’s get started with this How-To!

Is it prom? A night for clubbing? A wild-cool party? Do you just want to look your best, but amplified? Sparkly? Sexy? Edgy?

Well, here’s some ways to boost your “Glam Factor”, which can mean so many things. Image

FIRST: What is a “Glam Factor”??

Your Glam Factor is something that you don’t have on your own. If you’re bored of your brown eyeshadows and nude lipsticks, this look is for you!! It’s fun, pretty, daring, and at times a little weird. It can be anything from a sparkly eyeshadow, to fun hair clips, to your tallest heels, or a slash of pink lipstick…and it’s totally YOU.

Customizable. Ever-changing. Beautiful. Imperfect. YOU.

Here’s what you need to take your inner diva into the spotlight:

  • Fun makeup
  • Accessories
  • Courage

I know you may look at these three things and think… “Mmm gurrl, ya know I need more than dat!” Well, hunnybun, like I said, this look is totally customizable!

Here’s some of my FAVORITE tips for upping the glam:

Gloss it up, sugar. Gloss. It. UP.!!! In my opinion, nothing is sexier on the lips than the perfect shade of gloss. For nights out, I love a nicely opaque, gloss with a diamond shine, something that will stay put.

Buttttt, if you’re not a glossy-girl, go for your favorite dramatic lipstick. I love reds. They’re so classic, and that slash of crimson is sometimes all it takes to feel sexy! best-high-fashion-makeup--large-msg-13432493965

P.S: Some more great things include SHIMMER and GLITTER. (The two are very different :} ). You could play around with some shimmery eyeshadows, dust glitter on your shoulders, mix some in your lipgloss… Just DO NOT over-do it. A little shimmer is subtle, cute, and fun. A lot of shimmer screams “hot mess”. Foto01

Other ideas include:

Hair up, colorful eyeliner, statement jewelry, fun nails, sequins, spikes, ice bling, a wrap, wristlet gloves, whatever you want!!!

You get it ;}

Got your bling-bling? Your keys? Your powder for touch-ups?

You’re ready to hit the town.

MAC New York Apple

Ello, Curly-Fries! ❤

I’m SUPER surprised that hardly anyone talks about this lipstick, so I thought I should share its amazing awesomeness with y’all!!

FIRST OFF, it’s one of the most sultry, wearable reds I’ve ever seen, and it’s a frost finish!

P.S: When I say frost, I don’t mean like pure chrome. It’s soft, and in all the right places!

But anyway, the color’s unique. On my skin, it really looked like a juicy, dark-berry red. NO glitter detected, even though it’s pretty sparkly in the bullet, just a light “glossy” look in the center of my bottom lip and a little on my top lip.

I have a couple other MAC Frost shades, and some can be a little dry. This one was not DRY, in fact, it sat quite comfortably.

To be honest…I bought this shade on an impulse. When I got it in the mail, my first thought was: “Oh gosh, another red lipstick. Great.” I mean, I already have MAC Red so I thought I was set…but this is more subtle.

It’s subtle..yet captivating! I like how it has a touch of mauve-sparkle along with a soft golden tone, it’s complex and it shows!

I recommend you check it out…fo’ serious. It’s great.

MAC Mini-Haul

Aloha my beautifuls!

I recently went to my Macy’s to purchase a couple MAC lipsticks I’d had my eye on for a while. (By a couple, I really mean four.)

I got Viva Glam V, Rebel, MAC Red, and Up The Amp, four beautiful, classic MAC staples. This is going to be what I like to call it, a “bite-sized mini-hall”. It’s going to be short, sweet, and simple; BITE-SIZED. Enjoy!

Up The Amp:

Such a gorgeous lavender-violet, that can look really soft or really powerful and peppy. It’s a refreshing, unique, ladylike color, that can sometimes look more lilac than violet on the lips.

It sort of reminds me of candy, unicorns, cupcakes, flowers or pop-stars, something bright and slightly magical, glamorous and fun!

Viva Glam V: 

This is a buttery, delicious nude that reminds me of something sweet. It makes your lips look plump and healthy, and has enough shimmer to where it isn’t noticeable or unflatteringly frosty.

MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick See the very fine gold glitter? It’s not your average, boring nude, it’s the perfect MLBB (My Lips But Better), and has a nice sheen, giving your pout dimension!

Rebel: 

OHHHHHH MY GOSHNESSS! Can anyone say hello gorgeous?? This is THE PERFECT color for me. It’s an easy to layer, creamy, flattering color that can look rebellious, edgy, and elegant all at once…..it’s perfect! When I apply it, it instantly makes me feel very “va-va-voom”, “bow-chicka-wow-wow”,  and just plain confident! A lipstick like THAT deserves a gold star.

MAC Red: 

Finally found the perfect, classic red! This is definitely a new must-have for me. It’s a bright, classic red that some describe as “cool” or “bluish”, but it actually looks really beautiful on my warm-nuetral complexion! It is such a classic, iconic color with a stunning formula, that will make you feel just like the glam, Hollywood beauty, Marilyn Monroe.

Anyway, it looks cherry-red in the tube, but you can tone down the color to make it more of a stain if you’d like. This is WAAAY brighter than Russian Red F.I.Y, and I know I will love it forever!

Anyway my darlings, I hope you liked this short-and-sweet “mini-haul”. These are all gorgeous colors that I really reccommend, and if you try them, let me know how you liked them! Anyway, it’s snacky-snack time for me, and I’ll be back soon. Ciao!
